We’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.
Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.
In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.
We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

It has come to my attention over the last few weeks and in my own stream night before last that allowing banned users to remain in the channel is a BAD idea. I have seen where a few streamers are being harrassed on other forms of social media and even being recorded for said purpose. The night before last I had a user being disruptive in my chat, so I banned him. This user then continued to use the sound alerts extension to repeatedly play the alerts continuing to be disruptive. Much of this would be solved by making banned users unable to access both the stream and the chat. I'm not sure why a banned user is still allowed ANY access in the first place. Many other platforms remove all access by IP address upon the content creator banning the user. This is something that should be relatively easy to code into the streaming platform, and should be done IMMIDATELY!Kane_Nox supported this idea ·
